May 29: Supporting Haiti

While you’re doing your Spring Cleaning, please remember that we will have our annual yard sale in Aug and Sept. Place items that you’d like to donate on the left side of the Parsonage garage, or call Venita (Contact us) and we’ll pick them up.  Income will go to the Haiti orphanage and guest house.

And if you plan to go to Haiti in Nov. over Thanksgiving for our annual Missions trip, please contact Venita.

If you can’t go to Haiti but would like to support the work that we’re doing there, consider donating money to buy Bibles in Creole; they’re only $7.32 each! This is a great way to help the Haitians learn to read, and to learn about God’s love for them through His Word!

Thanks!

New Okipe Video – AMAZING!

There’s a new video about Mme Soliette and “her” orphans in LaGonave, Haiti. This video tells how Mme Soliette started the orphanage, but it goes on to tell us about the hope and future for these children.  (“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” Jer 29:11).

Bill Cody went to Haiti, met Mme Soliette, and God gave him a burden for giving these kids a new home. Bill is now the Chairman of a co-op called Okipe (Oh-kEE-pAy), which is a Haitian Creole word meaning, “to look after”.  They are working on The Children’s Village, and have purchased 4 acres for this village.
